Ironically enough, those who are born privileged have it the worst. Why? They will never have the chance to become great. Why? Only difficulty and need/want will give birth to your inner genius. In other words:

Rich kids born into wealth typically turn into degenerates, lazy people, and don’t do anything interesting with their lives.

Note the kids of Rockefeller — none of them of note. Also the kids of Warren Buffett— none of them have made a huge mark on history or society. Trying to live in the shadow of your (extremely successful parents) is a curse. No room to grow, ascend, or fly?

I also highly doubt Elon Musk’s kids will do anything of repute. Musk has apparently said that all they do is play video games.

Punished by privilege.
